Healthy Avocado Brownies

I highly recommend these brownies if you want something slightly sweet but still healthy. Now, I will warn you, if you've baked with coconut flour before and do not like the texture, then you will not like these brownies. I'm only saying that because coconut flour is slightly on the gritty side and some people can't get past it. I on the other hand don't mind it at all, and these brownies are perfect for something on the healthier side and still chocolatey!


1 avocado, peeled and cored
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
1/2 c. maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs
1/2 c. coconut flour
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 baking dish with non stick spray (or the small pans with dividers to make individually cut brownies). In a food processor, pulse the avocado, applesauce, maple syrup and vanilla together until you reach a smooth consistency. Pour out into a large bowl and add the eggs. Add the dry ingredients and stir until everything is combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top. Bake for 25-28 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan before removing (or removing and cutting).
